The Caribbean Vulnerable Communities is seeking applications for the micro-grants to develop and place social media advocacy campaigns to increase demand for the uptake of self-testing and Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).

The social media campaign should focus on the following themes:

  • PrEP-specific health literacy (e.g., awareness, and knowledge of how to seek PrEP);
  • low HIV risk perception and HST;
  • empowerment inherent to PrEP as a highly efficacious and acceptable prevention method; anti-gay stigma and benefits of HST; and
  • PrEP and the fear that family or friends might assume that they were taking medications because they are living with HIV.

Activities to increase coverage of essential and differentiated services for KP and PLHIV:

  • Development and implementation of social media advocacy campaigns on HST and PrEP; and
  • Sensitization sessions targeting MSM engaged through social media campaigns – offline support e.g. hotline, one-on-one/group counseling, podcasts, etc.

This grant is an activity-based contract; therefore, funding is contingent upon the achievement of certain deliverables.
